@EyeHawk, glad you are enjoying the course. I am finding it just fine so far and am looking forward to the application part of the course coming up in the second half or last three weeks. So what I have been doing is playing the videos at 2.00X speed and following the captions to make it pass more quickly.
Oh by the way, as I mentioned in a previous post above, edX is offering a free course, among others, CS50x: Introduction to Computer Science - HarvardX
which looks like a really interesting course from viewing the embedded video and reading about it online with Classes starting October 15, 2012 and ending on April 15, 2013.
